Workshops & Seminars

In addition to its studies, the FAAC offers workshops throughout the year. All workshops are aimed at beginners as well as advanced students. In the workshops the students will deepen and apply individual contents of the study. Each workshop deals with its own topic and is led by international artists who contribute their personal experiences and techniques. As a rule, a maximum of 18 people can participate in a workshop.


Painting Techniques with Michael Hutter

11.11.2023 – 12.11.2023

“Based on the technique of the old Flemish and Dutch masters, I have developed my own oil and watercolor painting technique, with the help of which I have been delving deeper and deeper into the labyrinth of my visionary, absurd painting for years. I would like to introduce these techniques to you and give you the necessary technical knowledge. The seminars are aimed at anyone who is interested in realizing their own picture ideas with great color brilliance – depth and beauty at a high artistic level.”

Character Design with Kristina Stroh

new date will be announced soon

“How do I develop an exciting character and then put it on paper? What makes a super villain and what makes a superhero? How do I represent a broken person who still has a brave light burning deep inside?
What makes my character cute, cheeky, malicious and unique in general? How do I draw a head from all perspectives, how the body? How do I not only add dynamics to my poses, but also represent the individual character traits of my character. A character, a figure, consists of more than just pure physical attributes. Just like a character from a novel, a comic character has a story, a background, preferences, fears, mistakes, and virtues. All these individual traits naturally shape the appearance, the facial expression, the gestures, and the posture, and how to do this most sensibly, we will look at this weekend.”
